After the sudden interest Edana has had in the potty, since her bestbud, Anaya is potty trained (yeah for her!) she has been talking about it and asking to sit on the potty.
So...I tried to encourage it. We bought the panties, juice, potty treats/stickers, and trainer diapers. After about 2 hours of constantly going to the bathroom, this is all to show for it...
It literally was the Potty Wars today. From Edana not understanding why mommy wouldn't give her a potty treat for going on the floor, to mommy sighing heavily as she watches her daughter scream demon-like when encouraged to try on her panties. How other mothers seem to do this seam-lessly, I will never know. So after much coaxing, screaming, crying, pushing, leaks, and tearing up the toilet paper, Edana had a nice nap, while mommy got her frustrations out by baking.
I will always be the first to admit it: I am NOT a baker. I love to bake. I love to create new ideas from recipes I read, but when I actually attempt it, nothing ever turns out the way I would hope.
Today's attempt: Lime Yogurt Cake with a lime sugar frosting.
To me it resembled a scrambled cake. Instead of cursing and tossing it in the trash, I essembled the cake on a plate, flourished it with frosting and lime zest and laughed. This cake definately sums up this sort of day.
It actually tasted really good, but it's frustrating when things don't turn out the way I thought they would...like our potty day.
At least I have a loving husband that will always be my guinea pig for these kind of days. He's even managed to get a happy Edana into big girl panties. My hero.
